Slot Type: Progressive Slots
Progressive slot machines with progressive jackpots grow based on the bets made by players, as a portion of each bet goes into the jackpot. This causes the jackpot to continually increase and rarely come to a halt. Progressive jackpots can be found on slot machines with 3 or 5 reels, as well as in 3D formats.
Progressive jackpots have been available for nearly 20 years, with the first ones found in land-based casinos. These casinos offered players the chance to win a jackpot similar to a lottery. Now, many online casinos are connected to a network of progressive jackpots through their software providers.
Some of the largest jackpot networks include Real Time Gaming, Microgaming, Playtech, Net Entertainment, Partygaming, and Dragonfish (or 888 Holdings Ltd.). Each network has a progressive jackpot that consistently exceeds 1 million at any given time.
